2 28-oz cans of baked beans (I prefer Bush Beans, original or Maple flavored)
¾ cup brown sugar
¾ cup molasses (use the full flavored not the lite versions)
4 oz. chopped cooked bacon
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon A-1 steak sauce
1/3 cup chopped white or yellow onions
Optional: For additional zing you can add horseradish, Pepperoncini juice, or mustard.
1. Drain the sauce from the beans, rinse under water and place in a Pyrex baking dish. Add the brown sugar, bacon, Worcestershire, A-1, and onions. Mix well.
2. If you like a little zip in your baked beans use one of the options listed above, personally I like the juice from Pepperoncini peppers (Mezzetta brand is my favorite).
3. Bake at 275 degrees for 2-3 hours.
Note: I put three to four strips of cooked bacon on the top of the beans for the last 1-1/2 hours.
